Sounds like a driver problem for some reason. Although you don't state the OS I'd try a system restore.

You really need to be more exact when posting your problem. What exactly is the error message you are getting? Word for word please.

If you have a Vista CD, would mit be possible to run a repair from that, if it like XP you ned to select the 2nd repir option not the first.

Hi thanks for the replies. I couldn't find the register keys so herds what I did. I went to c drive explore. Found old user in users folder. Created a new profile. Logged on with new profile. Found old user documents that was missing and copied to new user folder. I then went to control panel, system advanced users and deleted the old profile I was having problems with. I thenlogged on with new profile and all my documents and settings where intact. When copying you leave these files in their original place- .nt dat and .nt user don't copy these to new location hope that helps anyone with same problem. Thanks again
